    Good for a small wedding

    We had a small nontraditional wedding and Encore events provided the perfect space for all of it to take place - the ceremony and reception. They have multiple rooms that could be in use the same time but we found it the sunset room to be the perfect blend of outside and inside activities for our guest.

    Do not have your wedding here

    DO NOT HAVE YOUR WEDDING HERE!! I am a bride and will tell you the truth! If they delete this I will post it again. CLAIRE was so unprofessional. She is suppose to be the day of coordinator and didn't help us once. Leo tried his best but was still so unprofessional but do not trust Claire!! I can't believe we spent so much money for this place and they served us MOLD on our bread. Served me and our guests cold food because they forgot to turn on the warmers. The plates were dirty, my florist had to hand wipe all the plates, which was not her job. Our rental company had to move the tables when the event centers staff was in charge of that. My wedding planner had to take charge because they made the excuse by saying they're hosting 3 events. Soooo why take up 3 events when you can't even handle one?! They had their own kids working in the kitchen with no mask or gloves on. The whole experience working with them was TERRIBLE. I am reporting this place to the health department because it was just disgusting and unsanitary. They yelled at me and the groom for being unhappy with their service !! I am so upset and regret spending so much money there. They take days and weeks to respond to your emails or don't respond at all And do not care about you. There was another event there and the bride of that event was so upset because they didn't set up correctly. Her cake was messed up, It was supposed to be plated and they put her food as a Buffett style. The list goes on and on. They just want your money!!' Please do not waste your time or your money there. Please message me separately if you have any questions.

    Encore Event Center's reply:

    You post the same review on every website, every month. You have also threatened the venue and said you will take down your reviews if they give you money back- that's extortion. Since your event almost a year ago- there are new staff, new procedures and COUNTLESS happy Brides and events. Let it go already and let others decide for themselves if Encore Event Center is the place for them
